    Would you like to tell me your story, and answer some questions about your experience within your faith with me?

    I am doing an interview and write up for my Religious Studies class.

    I was assigned female at birth and am religious. But I am nonbinary and not a woman...so I reckon this don't apply unless it's about the experiences of someone who's sex is female and often perceived as female with religion then I could give that perspective as I am almost always seen as feminine despite my best efforts...and I know at least 3 practices in my path offhand that often are associated with only women that I practice.

    I don't know if that'll help? I doubt it but thought I'd put that out there. I'd be ok doing the interview as I'm a female sexwise.

    Same. Then I realized I wasn't a woman and wasn't a Catholic or orthodox christian either

    There are Buddhist nuns too and also NUNchakus though these ones are way cooler than any other sort of nuns.

    No. I was assigned female at birth and my sex is female but am neither a woman nor a man. My gender is nonbinary. I exist outside the binary of male and female. People like me have existed for thousands of years even classical judaism had 7 genders. Many cultures do now or had in the past accepted a not so binary view of more then 2 genders.

    Edit: I will not argue about my gender if you want to insist I'm not nonbinary. Im taking the question to be genuine. But I saw you rate SW's post as creative. She is a woman. Nothing creative about it. If you want to argue on whether nonbinary and trans people exist dont. I'm not in the mood. I'll however answer genuine questions in order to help you understand.

    No, no, I genuinely just wanted to understand your situation. I thank you for the information you are sharing.......I just now noticed,as you mentioned, the 'creative' frube. It must have been a mis-keystoke. I did not intentionally award the frube. I was unaware of the information you are sharing about the subject (gender).I meant no disrespect.

    Ah that's good then. I thought the question was perhaps genuine. So I thought I'd treat it as such.
